Never seen that before--thanks. I'm only two pages in, but...

The People's Park debacle referred to in the lead:

The disastrous Winterland show (not available in any source, according to db.etree):

The Robertson Gym show (supposedly):

...but see: http://db.etree.org/shn/6296

EDIT: Also, that Winterland show was the very next show after the celebrated Seminole Indian Reservation shows.

My alltime favorite piece on the Dead. Its in an old paperback I've had for 25 years of collected RS articles. Doesn't get better than this.
